Just attended the Australian System Safety Conference, the venue was the Customs House right on River. Lots of excellent speakers and interesting papers, I enjoyed Drew Rae’s on tribalism in system safety particularly. The keynotes on resilience by John Bergstrom and cyber-security by Chris Johnson were also very good. I gave a presentation on the use of MIL-STD-882 as a tool for demonstrating compliance to the WHS Act, a subject that only a mother could love. Favourite moment? Watching the attendees faces when I told them that 61508 didn’t comply with the law. 🙂
Thanks again to Kate Thomson and John Davies for reviewing the legal aspects of my paper. Much appreciated guys.
